Carrier Workers BLAST Trump: ‘He Lied His Ass Off’

Donald Trump has been bragging nonstop about the Carrier deal that supposedly kept more than 1,000 jobs in the U.S., but workers at the company are calling him out for being full of it. On Tuesday, the Carrier union’s president said point blank that Trump “lied his ass off” when it came to the terms of the deal.

United Steelworkers 1999 President Chuck Jones said that when Trump first said that he was going to save those 1,350 at the Indiana plant, he was hopeful. As The Hill explains, “Carrier had originally planned to move the jobs to Mexico, but decided to keep 730 of the jobs in Indiana after receiving $7 million in tax breaks from the state, where Vice President-elect Mike Pence is governor.”

Jones, giving the billionaire con-man far more credit than he deserves, fully expected that when Trump got up in front of the cameras on Dec. 1, he would explain that 550 of those jobs weren’t saved at all.

“But he got up there,” Jones said, “and, for whatever reason, lied his ass off.”

Last week, Trump couldn’t stop boasting about the deal during his ridiculous celebratory rally. “Now they’re keeping — actually the number’s over 1,100 people,” he said, “which is so great.”

But Jones says this is utter bullsh*t. Trump and Pence, he explains, were more than a little misleading and some of the jobs they claimed to have saved weren’t ever even slated to go to Mexico in the first place.

“Trump and Pence, they pulled a dog and pony show on the numbers,” Jones said. “I almost threw up in my mouth.”

But that won’t stop Trump from bragging, and it won’t stop his supporters from continuing to buy his lies hook, line, and sinker every damn time. No matter how many pants-on-fire lies Trump gets caught in, they still think he actually cares about the little guy even though it is more than obvious that he couldn’t care less about anybody but himself and his rich, racist buddies.
